The Global High Wealth Group is an industry group created by the IRS LB&I in 2009. The purpose of the Global High Wealth Group (also known as the “Wealth Squad”) is to bring together an IRS team of specialists to conduct detailed examinations of complex returns of high wealth individuals and their related entities. The IRS with updated Internal Revenue Manual provisions governing high wealth audits is poised to start the examination of hundreds of high net-worth taxpayers and large partnerships. Recent IRS announcements state that additional resources provided by the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 will be laser focused on high wealth persons and examinations, which typically involve pass-through businesses, related trusts, foreign holdings, tiered partnerships, and related tax-exempt organizations.
The program’s learning objectives include:
